I never in a million years thought to be sitting here on the other side of the screen saying: I sure hope I get shot in the head. I've been lynched of getting off the cast and crew for my story. So I want my scars and my story to serve as that lighthouse for others heading to the same rocks.
Imagine thinking you have everything under control, only to have your world turned upside down in an instant. That's exactly what happened to Rob. In this gripping episode of 'The Recovery Scene', Rob recounts his harrowing journey from substance use to a life-altering event that made him rethink everything. Having dabbled with substances from a young age, Rob's addiction escalated during his career in the oil fields.
Despite his efforts to manage it, he found himself trapped in a relentless cycle of self-destruction. It wasn't until he was shot in the head that he had a wake-up call that would change his life forever. This episode isn't just about the trauma; it's about the profound transformation that followed.
